Had to share this with people "in the know"!

On Craig's list there was a post for embroidery thread for sale (this  
was amazing just for the fact DH showed it to me, when he's always  
saying I don't need more stitching stuff!).  Anyway, it was a good deal:  
  $20 for 120 skeins of floss (some used).  I went to pick it up last  
night and had to snicker.  On the box someone had written, "needle point  
string". LOL!

My hubby also calls my stitching "needlepoint," and my floss "twine." I hav
e tried to correct him on his terminology to no avail. Awhile back he told  
someone that I "sew", which they took to mean that I taylored clothing. I l
aughed and said, "babe, I'm a Fiber Artist!" He gave me this blank stare an
d said, "what's that?" LOL

Wow, people REALLY don't get this hobby, do they?

Congrats on the floss! I hope when I'm dead and gone (or just can't stitch  
anymore), some other Fiber Artist will acquire and appreciate my leftover s
tash.

LOL!  I hope you enlightened him!  DH usually gets the terminology  
correct, if he cares to.  Sometimes he says it wrong just to bug me.

No, I don't think they do.

Yeah, me, too.  Although DD will probably take it...if and when she has  
time to stitch, being more into her horse than anything else.  But at  
least she does do some stitching and knows the effort that goes into it,  
so I don't think my stash will go to waste.
